SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: APHIS Pest Reporting and Asian Longhorn Beetle Program. OMB Control Number: 0579–0311. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: As authorized by the Plant Protection Act (U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) (PPA), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), either independently or in cooperation with States, may carry out operations or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests and diseases that are new to or not widely distributed within the United States. This authority allows APHIS to establish control programs for a number of pests and diseases of concern, including Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), emerald ash borer beetle, and citrus greening, to name a few. APHIS relies on various entities, such as individuals, households, businesses, and State departments of agriculture to report sightings of pests of concern or suspicious signs of pest or disease damage they may see in their local areas. This reporting and the detection and verification methods involved include information collection activities, such as the online pest reporting form (Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) Form 10), inspection and ALB unified survey form (PPQ Form 375), cooperative agreement for inspection, State compliance training workshop records, contract for inspection, homeowner permission or refusal to inspect, tree removal agreement, litigation and warrants and associated letters, removal and monitoring, removal and disposal, disposal/Marshalling Yard, tree warrant, treatment agreement, contract for treatment, and certificate/permit cancellation. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 PPQ Form 10 was previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under control number 0579–0311. However, in addition to this form, we are adding the information collection activities listed above to further assist APHIS with its efforts for the detection, treatment, and eradication of various plant pests. As a result, we have revised the name of this information collection from APHIS Pest Reporting Form to APHIS Pest Reporting and Asian Longhorn Beetle Program. We are asking OMB to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the information collection on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.63706 hours per response. Respondents: Individuals and households, businesses, and State departments of agriculture. Estimated annual number of respondents: 7,055. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 97.62. Estimated annual number of responses: 688,746. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 438,779 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: APHIS Pest Reporting and Asian Longhorn Beetle Program.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0311.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: As authorized by the Plant Protection Act (U.S.C. 7701 et 
seq.) (PPA), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), 
either independently or in cooperation with States, may carry out 
operations or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, 
prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests and diseases that are new 
to or not widely distributed within the United States. This authority 
allows APHIS to establish control programs for a number of pests and 
diseases of concern, including Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), emerald 
ash borer beetle, and citrus greening, to name a few.
    APHIS relies on various entities, such as individuals, households, 
businesses, and State departments of agriculture to report sightings of 
pests of concern or suspicious signs of pest or disease damage they may 
see in their local areas. This reporting and the detection and 
verification methods involved include information collection 
activities, such as the online pest reporting form (Plant Protection 
and Quarantine (PPQ) Form 10), inspection and ALB unified survey form 
(PPQ Form 375), cooperative agreement for inspection, State compliance 
training workshop records, contract for inspection, homeowner 
permission or refusal to inspect, tree removal agreement, litigation 
and warrants and associated letters, removal and monitoring, removal 
and disposal, disposal/Marshalling Yard, tree warrant, treatment 
agreement, contract for treatment, and certificate/permit cancellation.
    PPQ Form 10 was previously approved by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) under control number 0579-0311. However, in addition to 
this form, we are adding the information collection activities listed 
above to further assist APHIS with its efforts for the detection, 
treatment, and eradication of various plant pests. As a result, we have 
revised the name of this information collection from APHIS Pest 
Reporting Form to APHIS Pest Reporting and Asian Longhorn Beetle 
Program.
    We are asking OMB to approve our use of these information 
collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the information collection on those who 
are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, 
mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average 0.63706 hours per response.
    Respondents: Individuals and households, businesses, and State 
departments of agriculture.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 7,055.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 97.62.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 688,746.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 438,779 hours. (Due 
to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product 
of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden 
per response.)
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request

for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public 
record.
